What in the world did I just watch?
That flash was so crazy it was funny. I had a weird feeling in my stomach almost forcing me to laugh, so I did.
Anyways, although the graphics weren't the best, I commend you for the writing (as silly as it was). A lot of the singing was monotone, but it was quite humorous; so if that is what you were going for, you nailed it.
Good job on the musical. Even though it was really different and weird, it worked!
(P.S. If it's any consolation for YOU, I would give it a 7.5 but there is no decimal system. However, I just CAN'T pull myself to round up. :3)
Generic Newgrounds Flash
You probably submitted this to be taken "not so seriously", but I will go with the general rule that: "You chose to submit it, i'll choose to review it".
Graphics: They were okay. I guess you could say it seems you put some time into them. Someone earlier stated that your graphics were the only redeeming quality of this flash; I disagree. They weren't bad though.
Audio: Most of them weren't original (which isn't a necessity by any means) and that didn't favor you too much considering lack of proper graphical expressions to match that audio.
Humor: Assuming that your trying to make the general audience laugh; you didn't do too hot their either. I will account myself as a statistically viable person to be issued under the generalized public for these reasons: I find typical comedy shows on television to be quite funny, there are numerous "thought-out" flashes on Newgrounds that I find quite humorous including those of incredibly well known NGers(No real need to plug here, you know the ones I mean...), I enjoy myself a properly used meme from time to time (though most I found to not be really funny). Keeping that in mind, I did not find your flash funny whatsoever.
Don't take that too harshly; I don't feel negative about your flash at all. It just wasn't funny. I sat through those 30 seconds and found at the end of it, I was the same emotionally, mentally, and metaphysically (wtf?) by the end of it. No pay off.
I looked through your profile and check out your flashes and art and I will say that I've seen it all time and time again. Good job, you have succeed in being incredibly typical of a user; and the person you are obviously trying to become in this community: you have also succeeded in that.
Look forward to hopefully something not so bland. :3
(Melee Announcer Voice)***Failure.***
Failure if you were going for humour, because it wasn't really well done at all...
The art was pretty good depending on your taste, but I suppose that's debatable as well. Nothing really to say about it other then, try not to expect a high score just because it's "video game" based and what not.
It was very confusing to me and recycled characters from other jokes where they already made fun of their taunts. That idea was suppose to be what drove this series and you just kept doing the same ol' thing. To put it in lamens terms, I believe the saying goes "Don't beat a dead horse with a stick". Also, the skits that were "original" were apparently mostly inside jokes and that doesn't work out to well to the majority of viewers.
I do want to commend those people who you could tell put their effort into it and successfully portrayed their own style and talents in animation. I hope, at the very least that those who participated grew in animation and working as a collaborative whole.
Maybe next time, "Show yo' moves!"
First off, I am truly sorry you didn't win daily first(Cause you deserved it...). Great job on the story telling and good stuff on the voice acting as well. Bottom line with praises, you had my attention and I can't wait to see where this story is headed.
As for critiques; although I did like the style you used, I think a little more time could have been spent on graphics. If you did however do that around a week then that is amazing(So amazing I don't believe it)!!! Also, even though I did like your voices, continue to work on the main characters voice. It is obvious that he needs the most work.
Very humorous take on the lovable yet often times annoying Merchant on RE4. The style of graphics fit in pretty well. As far as plot goes, the only part I didn't really like too much was the end; just started getting REALLY ambiguous. You got me pretty much all the way on the humor though, great job! I look forward to your next flashes in hopes that you progress in quality of animation and graphics!
Great job with the overall "presence" of the animation. The music definitely fit well and made watching this animation cute and enjoyable.
As for criticism, I suggest taking your time a bit more on the actual animation process, I.E. When you used unnecessary Tweens in place of FBF, when you obviously have some pretty good FBF skills.
Other than that terrific job!
Concise review in Spanish for convenience:
Me gusto much el musica y estoria, no mas trabaja mas an el animacion, gracias mucho!
thank you! yes i am a tradicional animator, this was my first paperless animation it was for an animation festival so i was really short on time, it was made in 2 week.
i will put more time an effort on the animation.
lol thnx for the review in spanish- gracias por el comentairo.-
Amazing Quality Flash
First of all, great job on the quality of the flash. Well done and the background definition is certainly a breath of fresh air. I hope you know that i'm sure I can stand for many people when I say your animations definitely go appreciated and that your hard work shows very much. Sadly as for how the comedy goes, I have to say; I just watched this other flash on the front Portal called "Don't eat that sandwich!", and this is probably just as funny as that. I am just giving constructive criticism on that, having a random cussing scene derives from humour for those who have a good sense of it. Anyways I hope to continue to be dazzled by your coming flashes and that you continue to grow in your animation experience. Good luck!
It's a start...
That was a pretty good submission. I personally had no idea that school is such a way in Australia. Anyways; overall, your style is very unique and although it may have been a short submission, you showed what you wanted to accomplish. The only true criticism I can give from such a short piece is that, for the amount of work I can see that you did in this one, you ought to try a bigger project. In relation to what is seen in his animation, I can infer that if you do something longer (perhaps put some new artistic techniques to the test) you will find the rewards from experience and knowledge are priceless. Good luck Daniel Sun, I look forward to your next submissions.
As good as always...
I've been watching these ever since step 1 and I always get that astonished look on my face. It's been such a pleasure to be blessed with these animations; thank you for your gift. I look forward to your next one and I hope you continue to grow and work on all those little issues whether it be technique or post animation editing. Take care!
Definitely looks good~
I look forward to seeing this production in theaters(I live 10 mins from that particular theater!). It's always nice to see independent flash creators making their way to light. This flash is definitely not far from that. As far as criticism goes, I think if you work a little bit more on the graphics you will have something extraordinarilly stunning! Other than that, the story looks very well done and has a modern day Edward Scissor Hands-esque feeling to it. I look forward to seeing this on the big screen! Good luck.
I would love your support! I hope I can go. I gotta go so far >_<.
Thank you for your honesty. I have a lot more to improve.
Really curious what you think of the full flick.
